Stools are a piece of furniture that consist of a single seat for one person and a base of one or multiple legs. Traditionally, stools were differentiated from chairs by their lack of a back, but modern variations and definitions of stools may now include designs with arms and backs. The simplicity of the stool concept has made it useful for a variety of functions that include seating for children, flexible outdoor seating, and seating for restaurant and bar counters. When designing or choosing a stool, differences in materiality, durability, height, weight, and seat size are important specifications to consider.

How tall are bar stools?

Bar stools are the tallest type of stool and have seat heights between 29”-32” (74-81 cm). Bar height stools should be used for bar counter heights between 40”-42” (102-107 cm).

How tall are counter height stools?

Counter height stools have seat heights between 23”-28” (58-71 cm). Counter height stools should be used with table and counter heights between 35”-37” (89-94 cm).

How do you make stools taller?

Stools can be made taller by adding leg extenders to the bottoms of each stool leg. Leg extenders fit around legs and should be screwed or snapped into place. After attaching the leg extenders, use a level to confirm that the legs are evenly sized.
